A is for Avant-Garde

A is for Avant-Garde Image
We are delighted to announce the reopening of Cooper Gallery with the much delayed exhibition, A is for Avant-Garde, Z is for Zero: Laura Mulvey and Peter Wollen. This retrospective uses the gallery space as a means to refract the work of influential theorists and filmmakers Laura Mulvey and Peter Wollen through the prism of art.

Mulvey and Wollen's engagement with art and artists has always been a central dimension of their activities, exemplified by their numerous documentaries and 'theory films' about or featuring artists, critical writings, teaching, curating, their production of artworks, and their role as important interlocutors for artists. Incorporating moving-image works, audio recordings, drawings, diagrams, photographs and archival materials, A is for Avant-Garde, Z is for Zero maps the co-ordinates of two transdisciplinary, overlapping practices which includes collaborations and conversations with esteemed figures in art and culture such as Faysal Abdullah, Kathy Acker, Emma Hedditch, Mary Kelly, Mark Lewis, Yvonne Rainer and Kerry Tribe.
